Cornfield Installation

Tokyo, 26-11-2010

An installation by Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura is being exhibited at the museum of modern art, Tokyo.

Constructed entirely of paper and glue, the delicate structure is over 53.9 m2 with the longest side measuring 16m and the whole installation the height of an average person.

Nakamura designed the installation so it can never be viewed in its entirety. The lines of paper are meticulously attached to one another to create a lace-like structure with a weightless appearance.

Cornfield sits like a low, fine mist in the gallery space and the complex geometry allows tiny glimpses through to the other side of the room.

With its complexity and subtlety, Cornfield is a stunning piece of design. Images via Designboom.
